2 1/2 cup peeled and diced (large dice) russet or baking potatoes
 1 cup of water (for cooking potatoes)
 1/2 cup diced red and green onion
1/4 cup crumbled bacon pieces (more if desired and/or for garnish)
 Homemade Ranch Dressing & Dip (to taste)
 Yellow Mustard (to taste)
 Pickle Juice (to taste)
 Heavy Cream (to taste)
 Kosher salt (to taste)
 Fresh parsley for garnish, optional


Place the potatoes in the pot of your pressure cooker and sprinkle with kosher salt.  Add 1 cup of water and lock the lid in place.  Cook the potatoes over High Pressure for 5 minutes.  Release the pressure naturally.  Carefully remove the lid to avoid any steam that might still be present.  Drain the potatoes into a colander and set aside in a mixing bowl.  To the potatoes, add the onions and bacon.  Set aside to cool and refrigerate if possible.

While the potatoes are cooling, make your dressing.  My Homemade Ranch Dressing & Dip - was much more on the dip side ... I hadn’t added much milk to it, plus I had bumped up the spices by a smidgen.  I placed a couple of Tablespoons of the ranch dip into a separate mixing bowl.  To that I added a teaspoon or so of yellow mustard and a few splashed of pickle juice.  I stirred that around and thinned it a little bit with heavy cream.  If your ranch is more on the dressing consistency side (versus like a dip) - be careful that it’s not too thin - you likely won’t need the heavy cream - and if it’s too thin - you’ll need to thicken it up with a Tablespoon of mayonnaise at a time until it’s where you like it.  Taste one last time - and if possible, allow this mixture to chill in the refrigerator and to allow the flavors to marry.  Then you can taste and adjust for seasonings after a couple of hours in the fridge.

Once you’re ready to serve - mix the dressing with the potato mixture.  Add more bacon pieces of you like!  Garnish with fresh parsley if desired!  It’s super delicious on the next day too - pack it up for lunch at work!../3/12_Homemade_Ranch_Dressing_%26_Dip.html../3/12_Homemade_Ranch_Dressing_%26_Dip.html../3/12_Homemade_Ranch_Dressing_%26_Dip.htmlshapeimage_3_link_0shapeimage_3_link_1shapeimage_3_link_2
